For Nigeria and Argentina, it all comes down to this. Argentina’s woeful showing in Russia 2018 has been one of the stories of the World Cup so far, but a win in their final group match could yet save their campaign. Standing in their way is a revitalised Nigeria, who know a second consecutive victory will secure their route to the last 16. It’s a perfectly poised World Cup tie, and you can live stream it for free wherever you are in the world.
Amid rumours he’s lost the dressing room, Argentine coach Jorge Sampaoli is set to ring the changes once again with his starting XI. One of the few certainties is the presence of Lionel Messi, who’ll be desperate to prove he can show his imperious best in the Albiceleste after two disappointing performances so far this World Cup. Will Messi produce the kind of performance that has made him, for many, the best football player to ever kick a ball?
Argentina will need to win and hope Iceland don’t better their efforts against Croatia in order to qualify, while a draw may be enough for Nigeria barring a big win for Iceland. With confidence high following Ahmed Musa’s superb double in their 2-0 win in round two, a vintage World Cup upset could well be in the cards.
